Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Absorbing...Robinson excels at connecting his detectives’ personal stories to the investigation, endowing familiar characters with fresh nuance and depth. Impeccable pacing fleshes out Miller’s tragic life and unravels the killer’s motive.” (Publishers Weekly on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

Praise for Peter Robinson and the Detective Banks series: “Robinson rolls out a police procedural with exquisite precision.” (USA Today)

“Ambitious…Robinson shows a keen awareness of the global reach of crime.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Superb mystery series...outstanding.” (Wall Street Journal)

“Smoothly blends careful police work and astute psychological observations.” (Publishers Weekly)

“It’s easy to relate to and root for Banks.” (New York Post)

“Haunting stand-alone from Arthus Ellis Award-winner Robinson.” (Publishers Weekly on Before the Poison)

“Consistently fun...[A] first-rate procedural and character study..” (Booklist (starred review) on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“[Childred of the Revolution is] well-plotted and satisfying right to the end....Robinson has won many awards for his Detective Banks novels, and with this latest, he demonstrates his mastery of the craft.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Excellent.” (Library Journal on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Banks is a fully rounded character - smart, dogged and not above defying his superiors. The supporting cast is equally strong, including the wonderfully named Detective Sergeant Winsome Jackman and Lady Veronica Chalmers, an aristocrat whose radical activities during her university years link her to the dead man.” (Seattle Times on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Meticulously detailed...This is a fine, twisty, surprising tale.” (Providence Journal on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

“Robinson again succeeds in creating a satifyingly confounding mystery and increasing the already formidable depth of his superb ensemble cast.” (Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine on CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION)

Présentation de l'éditeur

"A disgraced college lecturer is found murdered with £5,000 in his pocket on a disused railway line near his home. Since being dismissed from his job for sexual misconduct four years previously, he has been living a poverty-stricken and hermit-like existence in this isolated spot.

The suspects range from several individuals at the college where he used to teach to a woman who knew the victim back in the early '70s at Essex University, then a hotbed of political activism. When Banks receives a warning to step away from the case, he realises there is much more to the mystery than meets the eye - for there are plenty more skeletons to come out of the closet . . ."

This is a very well constructed detective story with intersting and quite well rounded characters. The construction of the plot moves at a good pace with plenty of interesting details to whet the appetite.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Waouh ! Banks remue les ouvenirs ... 29 mai 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Une étoile en moins parce que j'ai eu des doutes... Où va-t-il avec ces deux enquêtes ? Il faut passer la moitié du livre pour commencer à comprendre (je ne doute pas du fait que certains seront + rapides que moi). Comme quoi je suis + attachée à Banks et sa collègue qu'aux autres enquêteurs...
Le côté intéressant de la partie hors Banks est le flash back sur l'Angleterre Thatcher vu par un GB = pas forcément comme c'était décrit ou compris en France.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HAPPY TO SHARE ANOTHER PINT WITH BANKS! 25 mars 2014
Par Gail Cooke TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Disclosure: I’m a huge fan of Peter Robinson and his Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks novels. There - my bias has been admitted up front. For me, these stories never fail to excite, satisfy and surprise. Robinson has a wonderful ability to mesh his characters personal lives with the mystery at hand, thus creating a reader/character bond. So, beginning another Banks novel is very much like visiting with an old friend (in a pub over a pint of Sneck Lifter, of course).

One of the pleasures found in reading a Banks novel is being privy to the way the Chief Inspector’s mind works, and this comes to the fore in Children Of The Revolution. Robinson loses no time in collaring his readers as on page 2 we find Banks called to a crime scene where he views “the crumpled body of an emaciated old man.” The name of the deceased is Gavin Miller, a recluse who has struggled to live at the poverty level since his dismissal from Eastvale College job following charges of sexual misconduct some four years ago.

Miller’s body was found beneath a railroad bridge. The side of the bridge was too high for him to have simply fallen - he had to have been lifted up or thrown over. Was it the result of a fight, murder or manslaughter? To further confound officials 5,000 pounds was found in Miller’s pocket - drug money?

Banks heads the investigation with his team spread out to uncover any information they could about Miller whether it be in his neighborhood or from former colleagues at Eastvale. What few answers they receive only further muddy the waters; contradictions, half-truths abound. However, it eventually becomes apparent that the answers Banks needs are not to be found in the recent past but more than likely in events that occurred some 40 years ago.
